East Ridge Parks and Recreation offers youth basketball to kids ages 5 through 15.  Practices and our home gym is at the East Ridge Community Center. We play in the Scenic City Basketball League with other organizations such as Fort O, Chickamauga, Ridgeland, Rock Spring, Rossville, Thunder, and East Hamilton. In order for us to have a basketball league we rely on VOLUNTEER COACHES. Volunteer coaches introduce participants to the fundamentals of playing basketball through practices and weekend games. The league emphasizes proper techniques, knowledge of the rules, team strategy, participation and fun!
